    I'm pretty sure she's crazy,

    she's incredibly sneaky & manipulative and has been very used to her only son and her husband doing as they're told. Now my fiancé (her only son) has a daughter and partner to put first she seems to struggle letting go. Her and her husband have moved away & we have made an...

    My mother in law is a nutcase.

    Recently we have come to the conclusion that she suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder as well as Borderline Personality Disorder. When I met my husband, he warned me about his mother and told me to be careful around her and not to trust her. He was abandoned by her...

    My soon-to-be MIL has never really liked me.

    My fiancé's brother dated his ex for 4 years. They started dating 3 years before I met my guy. When I entered the family she was very jealous and would tell my guy's mom that I was cheating on him, that I was crazy, that I hated her and the whole family, that I was always...

    She's Certainly Something

    In the beginning, there was Mother-in-law:  clearly a force to be reckoned with.j   My husband had never said much good about her.  Based on stories I'd heard from those who know her, my mind painted a picture of a, well, of a *****.  She was abusive on...

    She Ruined The Birth Of My Daughter And I Can't Get Over It.

    First, I should say that this post is for cathartic purposes. It's been five months and I'm still losing sleep over it, I'm hoping here I can find relief. My Mother-in-Law, or Crazy for Cocoa Puffs as I like to call her, ruined the birth of my daughter. Little background: my...

    Years Of Crazy

    My mother in law is a narcissist. She is all about herself, all the time. She only sees her son and her grandkids as trophies. If she spends five minutes talking to her grandson, she makes the whole neighbourhood believe she is the sole source of support for our entire family...

    She hates me because she thinks I'm stealing

    her son away from her. But the truth is he doesn't like spending time with her because all she does is abuse him and call his father names. I'm always the one forcing him to go see her and to spend time with her but when he does he comes back hurt and upset.
